A Special Time

We don’t often get to see most of our family members.  To see our siblings and my parents once every two years has been a treat since there have been times in our 19 years of marriage when even that frequency was difficult to manage. 

We were blessed that our trip to minister in Iowa developed the way it did with us flying to Chicago rather than driving up from Dallas.  That way we were able to visit with Beth’s sister, Kris, and her husband, Mike, and their four sweet children.  We enjoyed 2 days with them.  What a blessing since we had seen them for 2 days last July and didn’t expect to see them again until a 2 month home assignment in the fall of 2011.  I’m hoping to time that trip to wind up in Florida to be home with my parents for Thanksgiving with them.  It will be the first Thanksgiving or Christmas together with them since 1991.  I hope God allows our schedule to work out to make this plan work out.  It’s been an awfully long time.

  1. so glad you got a much deserved treat of spending time with family. Thank you for sacrificing your own wants to share the gospel with others. I know that your families are as much a part of each person you guide to Christ as you are, because they willing sacrifice their sister, brother, grandsons, nephew etc….. As you know I am in the same boat with my sister being a missionary. I miss them all the time!Kathy Carenza
